Design Letters | Arne Jacobsen Cups

The Danish company Design Letters created beautiful simple porcelain cups with letters on them. The typography used was originally created in 1937 by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen for internal signage at the Aarhus City Hall and Design Letters has received permission to revive the typography on a whole series of design interior.
The cup is made from fine bone China porcelain and is 9cm high with a diameter of 8.3cm and you can chose from all the letters of the alphabet.
The cups are very multifunctional and can be used as an actual cup or also to store pencils or you can even put flowers in it.
What we love about the cups is that you can put a candle inside and the light will shine through the porcelain, making your letter(s) glow in the dark.

The cups are an eye-catcher either way, if you just place them somewhere alone or if you combine many of them to create whole words.
Design Letters also created other products with Arne Jacobsen's typography, like bigger jars, cutlery, bowls, plates or a milk jug and for the cups there are wooden cups in different colours available.
We think the simple and straight design of the cups is very modern and still timeless and we like that they can be used in so many different ways.
